I think that Juliet’s parents were a big part of it because they wouldn’t let Romeo and Juliet be together and they were going to force her to marry Paris. They didn’t give her the freedom to grow old with the man she loves. Juliet became upset and had decided to take matters into her own hands and talk to Friar so she could be with Romeo. They had threatened to have her kicked out of the
She directs the nurse to go find out Romeo’s identity and if he had a wife. When the nurse returns with the news, Juliet exclaims, “My only love sprung from my only hate!/ Too early seen unknown, and known too late!/Prodigious birth of love it is to me / That I must love a loathed enemy (1.5.136-140). When Juliet He hears Romeo is a Montague, Juliet blames fate that the only person she loves is her only enemy. When first of all, Romeo wasn't even supposed to be at the Capulet’s party, Juliet barely knows him, and she still wants to marry him. Juliet is clearly running into love too fast and needs some self-control versus
Later on in the play, Romeo and Juliet are talking about their relationship, and what they would have to do to get married. Juliet says this to Romeo, “Deny thy father and refuse thy name / Or, if thou wilt not, but sworn my love / And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.” Juliet is saying that Romeo would need to give up his Montague name for her to be able to marry him. This quote shows the power of the feud that the parents have put them in. The young lovers can’t get married because of their parent’s rivalry, and this sets up many of their problems created by their parents. The next reason that Romeo and Juliet’s parents are responsible for their death is that the Capulet’s threw an enormous party, and let Romeo in.
In the prominent play by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, two young adults tried to escape what they believe fate was setting them up to suffer. They both tried to change the future by many impulsive decisions that did not help them escape reality. Not being able to change their outcomes, they committed suicide from a hurried relationship. The author of the play, Shakespeare, used indications of what might have occurred and the character’s dialogue to convey no matter what actions are taken, their tragic outcomes are destined to have occurred from the beginning. In the Prologue and Act I of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, foreshadowing was used to explain that the lovers’ outcomes were destined from the beginning, with little knowledge of what
After refusing her father’s proposition, he responds by saying, “Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch!” (3.5.160) Juliet feels an external conflict by having to obey her parents, even though she can not get married to Paris, because she is already married. After Romeo is found guilty for Tybalt’s Murder, he is banished from Verona, by the princes order. Romeo responds to this by exclaiming, “Ha, banishment! Be merciful, say ‘death,’ for exile hath more terror in his look, much more than death.” (3.3.12-14) Romeo sees his sentence as an internal conflict, as he is allowed to be anywhere in the world, except for in Verona with Juliet.
Have you ever just wanted to run away or even scream to the top of your lungs?That’s how Juliet felt when everyone was sculpting her life which drove her to want to die, but if I had to blame this on one person it would definitely be Friar Lawrence(William Shakespeare, page 376). Friar never had to give in to marrying Romeo and Juliet,or give the potion and crazy idea to fake Juliet 's death(William Shakespeare, page 453-454).If Juliet didn’t want to marry Paris, then she should have put on her big girl pants and told her parents that she was already married to Romeo and in love.If they were so in love the idea of death for them being together shouldn’t scare them, they both die anyways.If the Friar thought the idea of them being together was worse then he didn’t have to marry them. See in this world we live in you don’t have to do what other people want you to do. Friar deciding not to marry them wouldn’t put him in a death sentence if anything, it would have helped everyone not die.People in Shakespeare 's world are just foolish. Friar Lawrence could have easily went and took the letter to Romeo himself, but instead he had to be lazy and have someone else do it and look it never got done(William Shakespeare, page
The antics of Hermia, Titania, and Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare all demonstrate to the story’s teen readers that they should pursue what they love, regardless of the subsequent consequences. Firstly, in the story, Hermia is forced to decide between death or marrying a man she did not love, all instead of marry Demetrius. She decides against both of these, and instead is willing to accept her fate and runs away to marry Lysander. “Through her rebellion to marry Lysander, the man her father did not choose, she clearly displays that she is a woman capable of making her own decisions.”(Frosch 487) Being independent is one of the defining factors of adolescence, and being able to make one’s own decisions and decide
In the beginning of the play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo predicts his own fate as his “mind misgives” (1.4 104). The two young lovers are “star-crossed lovers who take their life” because they care about each other very deeply and their love is doomed by fate as they are not allowed to be with one another due to the family feud between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s who will avert them from being with one another. This creates a barrier to their happiness because of their
“Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare is about Romeo and Juliet, who fall in love but they are from two separate parties that have a feud. They get married anyways but it is very hard to see each other. So they ask Friar Lawrence to help them so he makes a complex plan to get the two to Mantua unharmed and easily in his eyes. That was not the case unfortunately because it failed and Romeo and Juliet both kill themselves because they couldn’t live without each other. Loyalty is one of the major themes of this book.
“My grave is like to be my wedding bed.” (1.4.149). The author foreshadows Juliet’s death by showing thinking that she will “die” after getting married, but not in a literal sense. She thinks that marriage will “end her life” by taking away her livelihood and reducing herself to a homemaker or housewife. Her planned arranged marriage with Paris was her predetermined destiny, which coincidentally was caused by the feud. While, she is not yet satisfied with her life and attempts to escape the feud, and ultimately the feud.
